Grand Theft Auto V gets September 17 release date

Ambitious open world title gets delayed to later in the year

Rockstar Games has set the release of its highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V for September 17.

The official release date, however, is approximately four months later than the original one planned.

In addressing the delay, a Rockstar spokesperson acknowledged it may come as a disappointment to many people but it will “be worth the extra time.”

“GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we, and more importantly you, require,” the spokesperson said.

The spokesperson adds that the entire GTAV team is currently hard at work to make the game all it can be.

“We are doing all we can to help ensure it will meet if not exceed your expectations come September,” the spokeperson said.

Grand Theft Auto V is currently set for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
